Subject: Before Mel Gibson..
Before Kevin Costner and Mel Gibson did it so handily, there was M.A. Wetherell writing, directing AND starring in his vanity production of Robinson Crusoe. I actually thought it was going to be more hammy, but actually, thankfully, Wetherell puts some humanity into his portrayal of Crusoe, and moves the story along nicely (wonders, since he's the only person in the movie for 3/4 of the movie). However when Friday comes along, it sorta turns into this weird homoerotic fantasy (what IS crusoe wearing?) and the character of Friday is not quite Stepin Fetchit territory, but veers close. The ending when he's reunited with his lady love is probably the most ridiculous part, as she welcomes the man who's been gone for so long as if he was just away on a little stroll around the block.. Also.. did she EVER tear herself away from the house? Did she ever change her clothes?? Such questions!
